My Nails and My Book Review - Kill or be Kilt by Victoria Roberts


Title: Kill or be Kilt
Author: Victoria Roberts
Series: Highland Spies #3
Goodreads Summary: Lady Elizabeth Walsingham pined after the same man for years. When she finally realizes the brawny Highland laird doesn't return her feelings, she decides to leave for London and start anew. It seems that her prayers are answered when she catches the eye of a charming actor at the Globe Theatre - a man who is the complete opposite of the Highlander she once loved. 

Laird Ian Monroe spends his time avoiding the bothersome young girl who dreams of their union. But when he travels to London and discovers that she has a new love interest with a dishonorable agenda, his perspective changes. Ian soon realizes that Elizabeth is no longer a child with a crush, but a beautiful woman in need of his help. He may have what it takes to rescue Elizabeth from her scheming beau, but does he have the courage to reclaim Elizabeth's heart as well?

My Review: 

**I received a copy from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review**

I absolutely adored this book. About halfway through, I bought 4 of her e-books because I was enjoying her writing so much. The characters felt like they could be real people. One thing I really loved about the story was how there was a tiny bit of a mystery. It wasn't enough of a mystery to call it anything other than a romance book, but it made it feel like there was something more to the story than trying to figure out when the characters would finally end up together.

My Manicure: For this manicure, I decided to attempt a simple freehand plaid based on the cover. Attempt being the key word here. First, I painted my nails with two coats of OPI I'm Not Really a Waitress. After that dried, I painted black stripes with Sinful Colors Black on Black, and topped that with white stripes using Sinful Colors Snow Me White.
